We all love books, but how about magazines? Magazines are perfect for the shorter flight or poolside (so your book doesn’t get wet), don’t you think? What are your favorite magazines or what magazines would you recommend for book lovers? Or is there a magazine we should stay away from? Our thoughts are below, but we can’t wait to read yours!

LEAH: familyfun.jpg I just ordered a subscription to Family Fun magazine and can’t wait to browse through it for some good ideas to do with the kids this summer. This magazine is full of everything from craft projects to ideas for decorating or organizing your kids’ rooms to lists of fun activities for kids and families going on around the country. I think sometimes I get stuck in a rut of doing the same sorts of things with my kids and I look forward to some fresh ideas!

SALLY: I have three favorite magazines: TV Guide (which is a real magazine now); Today’s Christian Woman; and Prevention. TV Guide keeps me up with enough entertainment news and lets me know what’s on when. Today’s Christian Woman has a mix of information for women from all walks of life, and Prevention has good information on how to take good care of myself. Prevention magazine even has yummy low-fat recipes to try. Their web site has information about skin care, exercising, and supplements. I like it!

AMY: My favorite magazine is Entertainment Weekly. I devour each issue as soon as it comes! I like Entertainment Weekly because it is not a gossip magazine (well, there might be a little!) but more focused on the actual entertainment! It’s informative with in-depth reviews, interviews, and industry news. What I really love is that it covers all areas of entertainment..film, television, books, music, and the stage. I have gotten so many book ideas from EW. If you don’t subscribe, but love all of those things, I highly recommend you give it a chance!

    Tough theme today for me, I’m not such a big magazine reader as I used to be. I think it’s because they are getting so expensive that it’s often possible to find a cheap fiction book in the supermarket or other budget shop for just as cheap if not cheaper and I know what will give more satisfaction. Still there are times when only a magazine will do!
